Faber Music Ltd was founded in 1965, as a sister company to the distinguished book publisher Faber and Faber. Seeking a publisher that would offer the highest score production standards and tailored services to promote and disseminate his works, it was Benjamin Britten who triggered the venture. The principles on which it was founded have been the company’s hallmark ever since. Shortly after its birth, The Times newspaper called Faber Music “the new champion of quality in music publishing”. Fifty years on, the company is now one of the leading independent British publishers of classical, contemporary, media, and printed pop and educational music, enjoying a reputation as one of the most influential publishers of serious contemporary classical music in the world.

At the core of Faber Music’s print catalogue are tutors, repertoire and educational publications by world-renowned figures in their respective fields, including Fanny Waterman, Paul Harris and Pam Wedgwood. Most recent is the launch of the Lang Lang Piano Academy, a learning method created by one of the most influential pianists the world has ever seen.

Besides repertory works by Vaughan Williams, Arnold, Holst and Britten, Faber Music’s performance catalogue features one of the most distinguished lists of internationally recognised house composers, including George Benjamin, Thomas Adès, Oliver Knussen, Jonathan Harvey and, most recently, Anders Hillborg. The company’s established British core (Colin and David Matthews, Julian Anderson, Nicholas Maw, Tansy Davies) is complemented by a strong Australian connection, (Peter Sculthorpe, Carl Vine and Matthew Hindson), and a growing catalogue of young talent (Francisco Coll, Martin Suckling and Tom Coult).

Faber Music also handles Carl Davis’s renowned scores for great films of the silent era (including NapoleonThe General and the Chaplin Mutuals), Lloyd Webber’s Cats, the concert works of Paul McCartney, Howard Goodall and Jonny Greenwood, and the classical/electronic composer Anna Meredith.

The company’s substantial media division represents outstanding internationally established composers of music for film and television, including Howard Goodall (Vicar of DibleyMr Bean), Jonny Greenwood (There will be blood) and Carl Davis (Pride & Prejudice, Cranford). Through its subsidiary Rights Worldwide Ltd it offers a specialist service of copyright administration to media composers and production companies. Award-winning composers include Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love), Jeremy Sams (Enduring Love), Simon Rogers (Hustle) and Dan Jones (Any Human Heart).

Following an exclusive European print licence deal with Warner Chappell in 2005, the catalogue now encompasses some of the most famous names in popular 20th-century music: Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, an array of Broadway and West End musicals and some of the biggest names in contemporary pop and rock, including Radiohead, Elbow and Muse. As the exclusive agent for the Warner Chappell rental catalogue outside North America, Faber Music handles a vast array of musicals (including Bugsy Malone), operas, operettas and popular concert works (including Gershwin, Bax, Coates and Loewe).

Faber Music’s philosophy is to identify and support outstanding composing and other creative musical ability wherever it is to be found, and to provide supreme service for all of its partners and customers by nurturing a close working relationship with each. The company continues to build up and promote its music copyrights internationally, and is proud to provide distribution and administration facilities of unrivalled excellence.

Beginning with the participation in the German singing movement during the 1920s, Protestant church music and the burgeoning interest in early music, Bärenreiter quickly developed its distinctive profile.

Close contacts with musicological research led not only to the publication of the milestone encyclopaedia Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart (now in a second, completely revised and expanded edition), but also to a host of new critical complete editions, used extensively by both scholars and musicians all over the world.
